More From Francine Raymond
The Telegraph’s favourite garden writer is back with more succulents for us to enjoy.
While I feel I can boast modest success growing plants outside in the garden, I seem to be the kiss of death to indoor plants…. Now, happy in their new home (a well-lit south-facing porch), the sole survivors of a once flourishing conservatory — my succulents are my horticultural guilty pleasure….
I also admit a penchant for the hardier sempervivums and sedums that can be grown virtually anywhere…
Mine spend their summer holidays out in the garden, enjoying the fresh air, and up until two winters ago some echeverias could almost be considered hardy.
Vivid language is only one of her talents; picking out suitable succulents for the UK being another.
